Good morning Artists!
Ever since I started painting I have used the Mark Carder method... where you get the right color you place it down and pretty much leave it... with no blending or very little blending. I personally think its a fantastic way to paint, and as he says in his video with the pear, at rooms length it looks great... the issue I am having is, when I paint and post my work in which people aren't seeing the actual painting, but rather are seeing a photograph of the painting on my website, I have seen friends, zooming in analyzing the painting, and ask , why does it look like that... I take the phone and place it far away and tell them to look at the whole picture, and they finally see it... I think if your work is in a gallery or something and people actually see the painting, its fantastic, but if they are viewing off of a screen, perhaps blending will be more useful? anyone else similar problems or thoughts?
What is the best method to blend? Do you place the colors as you see them down, then with a clean soft brush try to blend the lines together? What is the best brush to use for that?
